in elgin, texas is now selling my work! the shop, at 106 n. main, is owned in part by treenmaker nancy lou webster. 'treen' is an old generic name for small handmade functional household objects made of wood. in 2006, the texas commission on the arts awarded nancy lou the distinction of being a texas original artist. the award is limited to individuals who exhibit excellence in art through work that is unique to the state of texas. less than fifty texans have received the distinction. i'm honored and excited to be in such good company.
